Community Engagement Program

The Community Engagement Program is the support arm of the Arrupe Office of Social Formation (AOSF) tasked to facilitate all  “outreach” and “engagement” related activities as a means of providing opportunities for social formation to students, faculty, staff and alumni of the Ateneo de Davao University.


AFIRE for the Common Good: Formators Who Passionately Seek God's Will of a Just Society.


1. Faculty Inductee Exposure Program (IndEx)

The Faculty Inductee Exposure Program, commonly known as IndEx is an immersion opportunity that is required for new employees of the Ateneo de Davao University. In this engagement, the participants encounter those in the peripheries as they are, and not as problems to be solved. This transformative experience hopes for the participants to be open to the social realities of different people. 

After their experience, the participants are asked to contribute back to the community where they immersed in. 

This program lasts from 3 days to two weeks of community immersion. 

1. Coffee Circle Conversations

Coffee Circle Conversations are simple and intimate conversations used as an ongoing formation especially for those who have undergone InDex. This provides and opportunity for the Inductees to share their reflections, hear the reflections of others, and deepen them so that they may be able to become more effective sui generisi Formators.
